Comfy camping. Stayed 4 nights in a new ecotent. Never slept better camping! Had a blast every day. Hiked, rented a paddle board, snorkeled, sailed. The new restaurant called RainTree has a nice bar. Lunch was great, dinner still needs a more work. All in all, one of our best vacations. We're coming back for sure!

A town hall meeting in February has reportedly led to a halt by the NPS of the construction at the Cinnamon Bay campgrounds, citing environmental concern and questions on the fee structure and the changes in the facility, such as the drastic reduction of bare site campsites. Anyone who has stayed at the campground in the past few years knows...

As an occasional visitor to this beautiful campground, I am dismayed by some of the changes that have taken place after the business changed hands. Clear campsites (where people could pitch their own tents) are giving way to state-of-the-art platform pre-made tents. While handsome, and equipped with fans and electricity, these made for desert tents leak. Tree rats abound (steal...

Well, "Cinnamon Bay Campground" is no more. Cinnamon Bay is under new management and they, evidently with the blessing of the National Park Service, are in the process of converting it to "Cinnamon Bay Resort." In keeping with the new name, the new management has installed so-called "Eco Tents" (about $200/night) on almost all of the former ($37/night) bare sites....

We stayed at the cottages in Feb 2017. We have been visiting for years and used to be appalled at how rude the staff was (other than waterfront concession staff) to the visitors. That has dramatically changed. Everyone was nice to extremely nice. The Eco-Tents look good. I'm a little worried about the reports of rain getting in them. I...

Staying in 4C and 4D with family. Some road noise here. Cottages are clean and stocked with dishes and cook stove and coolers. Haven't seen any cockroaches. Beds are clean and reasonably comfortable. Lots of long time repeat visitors are unhappy with the changes coming--expensive eco-tents and losing lots of bare sites. We do our own cooking and have heard...

New promotions have removed the label campground; the posted photo no longer applies. Campsites are being redone with large wood platforms and camp-supplied leaky tents. The buildings are dense with tree cutting and unplanned water run-off. The "camp" store is really a souvenir shop. Group campsites are being removed. Beach is still beautiful, but expect an expensive glamping experience. Staff...

This place recently changed hands and, while it's still the same gorgeous location, there are some serious issues. They're clearly trying to be the Eco resort that Maho Bay used to be, but despite generally nice and friendly (if poorly informed) staff, the management clearly really can't get it together. For the Eco Tents and other more "upscale" options, the...

We stayed 10 nights in cottage 3A. It was in much better shape than we expected after reading some of the reviews. On day 5, we had a heavy rain storm at night. Several of the other cottages (1A for sure) leaked and the beds got wet. I read the review about having a roach problem, so we brought small...

It was disheartening to see some of the changes, poor roll-out and missed opportunities that new management could easily own. I do not remember in our 35+ years the chronic morning alarm bell for the septic system ringing, sadly, new management points the finger to the Park Service. Grounds are not as cleanly maintained, some toilets are loose and many...
